Selling your home can bring a ton of stress especially to already busy families with a million other priorities. But, there are plenty of simple ways to improve the look of your home to potential buyers and increase its curb appeal overall.
Here are 3 of our favorite ways to rejuvenate the look of your home without busting your staging or selling budget. And here are 5 more tips to make selling your home as simple and hassle-free as possible!
Paint or refresh outdoor elements
Think about the elements in or near your front yard that might draw the eye of passerbys who see your For Sale sign. Things like your front door, shutters, and trim are easy to refresh and a gallon of exterior paint can be purchased for as little as $30. Think about picking a bold color for the door (that still matches the rest of your home) to really make it eye-catching.
Your mailbox is also something that can easily be spruced up with a quick coat of paint (just make sure the numbers are still visible). Or a mailbox is also an easy and relatively inexpensive replacement if you want to change the shape or look. If you are replacing it, make sure to check the regulations with your local city or town before starting.
Add or update house numbers
One of the most important (people need to find your home!) but often neglected element of owning a home are the numbers out front!
If your painted house’s numbers have faded on the curb or have rusted near your front door, it’s time for an update! There are so many ways to do this from purchasing new numbers and hanging them near the front door to more creative solutions. If you want to just buy numbers, make sure they match the look of your exterior fixtures and are in a color that is easily readable from the street.
If you want to get a little more creative, stencil the number onto a post or large tree truck or paint them right on the front door with a bright color! Looking for more creative ideas? Click here!
Make budget friendly additions
There are easy ways to differentiate your home from all the others on the market by making smart investments that you can take with you. A few good examples of this are adding a stone or ceramic birdbath or colorful flower boxes. Add these flower boxes around the doors or windows on the porch or deck, just remember you will need to keep up with the care and maintenance for the plants.
